The daisies are nearing their end here in north Idaho. Daisy season is one of my favorites -- firstly because it's an amazing thing to be literally surrounded by one's all-time favorite flower, and secondly because daisy season is the height of summer beauty.
This is a mixture of daisies and dog fennel.
Older Daughter and I went for a walk in our woods today so she could show me a large ant's nest.
On the way back, she stopped to pick some daisies to make a daisy chain. Sadly the photo turned out blurry, yet the blurriness has an artistic touch, doesn't it? (That's right, I meant for it to turn out blurry.)
Once home, she made tiny slits in the stems and began weaving the flowers in a chain.
Lydia rested her head on Older Daughter's feet.
About half-way done. "I could never do this if I lived in a city," she noted, "unless I bought the flowers."
Testing it out. (Blurry shot, sorry.)
